A Morning of Political Commentary with

Jim Defede

For a Much Anticipated Return Engagement

The Presidential race has heated up and it’s been a whirlwind campaign. Democrat, Republican – no one knows who our next President and Vice President will be. We are fortunate to have Jim Defede, a Brandeis favorite, for a return engagement this year to give us his insight and opinions on this most tumultuous of races. Jim Defede is the well-known investigative/political reporter with CBS News and host of the station’s Sunday morning program, Facing South Florida. Jim was a columnist for the Miami Herald for three years and before that was a reporter with the Miami New Times. Please join us for a fascinating look at the 2016 Presidential Campaign as only Jim Defede can explain it. It will be an exciting and thought provoking program. Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Temple Judea on US1 and Granada Blvd. Coffee & Conversation at 10:15 am The Fall Showcase 2016 program will be followed by a wonderful luncheon catered by Michael’s Catering. Net proceeds go to the BNC Scholarship Campaign at Brandeis University.
